What The Cast Of Warehouse 13 Is Doing Today

In the spring of 2009, the Sci-Fi Channel rechristened itself "Syfy." Along with this announcement, network president Dave Howe proclaimed the upcoming series Warehouse 13 to be the flagship program of the new brand. The series, promoted as "part X-Files, part Raiders of the Lost Ark and part Moonlighting," centers around a pair of U.S. Secret Service agents who are recruited to track down artifacts with supernatural characteristics and return them safely to the show's eponymous secret facility. The series was created by Jane Espenson (known for her work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Torchwood, and Once Upon a Time) and D. Brent Mote (known only for this). Warehouse 13 ran for five seasons on Syfy and occasionally crossed over with its sister show, Eureka, together forming the backbone of Syfy's post-Battlestar Galactica era of original programming.

While five years on a television series is nothing to sneeze at for any actor, being on Warehouse 13 does not seem to have had a profound effect on the careers of any of the show's regular or recurring cast. Years after the show's cancellation, the stars of Warehouse 13 who were established names beforehand have continued to prosper in the ensembles of other series, while those who were plucked from obscurity have, sadly, returned to it.

Eddie McClintock applied to become a real cop

Prior to winning the co-lead of Warehouse 13, Eddie McClintock had been cast as a regular in four short-lived sitcoms in the late '90s and 2000s — Holding the Baby and Stark Raving Mad for NBC, A.U.S.A. for Fox, and Crumbs for ABC. Of the four of them, only one — Stark Raving Mad — aired its entire first season. He spent most of the 2000s as a reliable guest actor, making single appearances on series like The King of Queens, House, and Monk, and recurring as Special Agent Tim Sullivan on Bones.


McClintock continued to make one-off appearances on other series such as CSI and The Mentalist during his five seasons playing Secret Service Agent Pete Lattimer on Warehouse 13, and for the years to follow. McClintock once again played a wisecracking G-Man as a regular on USA's action series Shooter, but was only a regular cast member for the first of the show's three seasons.


According to a Twitter thread posted by McClintock In May 2020, he applied to join the LAPD after going a full year without any new acting bookings. Despite being clean and sober for 19 years, McClintock's application was denied due to his past as an addict. Since then, he's been cast in the 2021 pandemic rom-com Will You Be My Quarantine?

Joanne Kelly is guest starring on Godfather of Harlem

The actor most famous for playing Secret Service Agent Myka Bering got her start doing guest roles on productions shooting in her native Canada. She recurred on Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski's short-lived drama Jeremiah and on the cult comedy Slings and Arrows. After appearing on the first season of Syfy's The Dresden Files, Kelly landed the role of co-lead on Warehouse 13.


After the series ended in 2014, Kelly played a supporting role in the independent film Closet Monster, which won Best Canadian Feature at TIFF in 2015. Next, she joined the cast of CBS' absolutely bonkers sci-fi series Zoo in a recurring role for one season. Most of her career since has consisted of one-off television guest roles and direct-to-video genre flicks, but Kelly scored a more prestigious role in 2019, portraying real-life author and socialite Amy Vanderbilt in three episodes of Godfather of Harlem opposite Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker.
 The series has been renewed for a second season, but it's unknown whether or not Kelly's character will return.

Saul Rubinek is hunting Nazis

The most recognizable member of Warehouse 13's original regular cast is without a doubt character actor Saul Rubinek, whose film and television career dates back to the 1970s. While rarely in a lead role, Rubinek is one of those actors who's bound to provoke an "I know that guy!" whenever he pops up onscreen. Rubinek recurred on the original 1980s incarnation of The Equalizer, The Practice, Leverage, and most notably a long guest run on Frasier, and appeared in the acclaimed films Wall Street, Unforgiven, and True Romance.

After playing Special Agent in Charge Artie Nielson on all five seasons, Rubinek has also had the strongest post-Warehouse 13 career of all of his regular co-stars. In 2018, he appeared in the Coen brothers' acclaimed Netflix experiment The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, and in 2020 Rubinek joined the regular cast of the Amazon original series Hunters, the role Rubinek says he was "born to play."

On Hunters, Rubinek portrays Murray Markowitz, an electronics expert recruited into a team of Nazi-hunting vigilantes, performing alongside Oscar winner Al Pacino, comedy legend Carol Kane, and Rubinek's own daughter, Hannah Reid Rubinek. This is a deeply personal role for Rubinek, who was born in a refugee camp in Germany after his parents successfully hid from the Nazis in occupied Poland during World War II.

Genelle Williams is still on Canadian television

Genelle Williams began her career as a teenager in Canada, boasting a regular role on sitcom The Latest Buzz, recurring on high school dramedy Radio Free Roscoe, and appearing as two separate students on Degrassi: The Next Generation. Williams portrayed civilian consultant/bed and breakfast proprietor Leena for the first four seasons of Warehouse 13, after which she has continued to appear on Canadian television series such as the medical drama Remedy and the werewolf fantasy series Bitten. Williams returned to science fiction in 2018, portraying socialite Tilly Fagan on four episodes of The Expanse.


Williams' latest project is the legal drama Family Law, in which she will co-star with fellow genre TV darlings Jewel Staite (Firefly) and Victor Garber (The CW's Arrowverse).
 Season one of Family Law wrapped production in October 2020 and should be coming to Canadian television in 2021. The series will be distributed internationally as well, though details about availability outside of Canada have not yet been made available.

Allison Scagliotti is directing and creating music

Before joining the cast of Warehouse 13 as hacker extraordinaire Claudia Donovan, Allison Scagliotti performed regularly on kid- and teen-oriented series like Drake & Josh, Zoey 101, and One Tree Hill. After Warehouse 13 ended in 2014, Scagliotti immediately took on a regular role as another computer expert, Camille Engelson on the sci-fi series Stitchers, which ran for three seasons.


Since 2018, Scagliotti appears to be taking time off from acting in favor of launching a career as a director, helming episodes of the Nickelodeon sitcom Henry Danger and the Disney Channel studio improv series Just Roll With It. Scagliotti is also a musician, having performed in the band Nice Enough People with her Drake & Josh co-star Jerry Trainer in the mid-2010s. In 2020, she released the debut LP for her solo musical endeavor, La Femme Pendu, which she describes as "French lounge horror ballads."


Aaron Ashmore is under Locke & Key

Not to be confused with his identical twin brother Shawn, also a television star, Aaron Ashmore joined the cast of Warehouse 13 during season three as the human lie detector Steve Jinks. At the time, Ashmore was already well known to fans of genre television for playing Jimmy Olsen on Smallville (and later, his younger brother Jimmy Olsen. You read that right). Ashmore proved himself hard to get rid of once again on Warehouse 13 when his character was killed off and then resurrected a few episodes later.


After Warehouse 13, Ashmore starred in a leading role on another SyFy series, Killjoys, which ran for five seasons. After Killjoys wrapped, Ashmore was cast in a recurring role as Duncan Locke on the Netflix horror series Locke & Key before being promoted to series regular for the show's second season. The series has been preemptively renewed for a third season, and may be keeping Ashmore busy for years to come.
 


CCH Pounder is solving crimes on the bayou

CCH Pounder portrayed Warehouse 13 Caretaker Mrs. Frederic in a total of 29 episodes across all five seasons of the series. Pounder is a recognizable face and a very recognizable voice with five decades of film, television, and animation performances to her name. By the time of the debut of Warehouse 13, Pounder had already been a regular on ER and The Shield, receiving an Emmy nomination for each. She also appeared in feature films such as Prizzi's Honor, End of Days, and Avatar. She may also be familiar as the voice of Amanda Waller on the animated series Justice League Unlimited and in the Batman: Arkham video games and spinoffs.


Currently, CCH Pounder is years deep into portraying medical examiner Loretta Wade on NCIS: New Orleans. Given that no NCIS series has been canceled to date, that may well keep her busy for quite some time. But that's not all — Pounder is slated to reprise her voice and performance capture role as Mo'at, the Na'vi spiritual leader, in Avatar 2, 3, and 4.


Pounder is also an avid art collector and exhibitor, supporting and showcasing artists from throughout Africa and the African diaspora.

Simon Reynolds is writing screenplays in India

While credited for the entire first season, Toronto actor Simon Reynolds only actually appeared as Secret Service Deputy Director Daniel Dickenson in four episodes of Warehouse 13, with the character being killed off in his final episode. Reynolds had been a regularly working actor on Canadian television for decades prior, with his most prominent role being Stuart Harrison on the musical dramedy Instant Star from 2004 to 2008.

Unlike the rest of the cast, Reynolds does not maintain a public web presence, so we reached out to him directly to discuss his departure from Warehouse 13 and his more recent work. According to Reynolds, the character of Daniel Dickenson was originally expected to play a larger role on the series, but his being based in Washington, D.C. rather than South Dakota with the other main characters made it difficult to work him into episodes, so he was killed off with no hard feelings.

Since Warehouse 13, Reynolds has pulled back from acting to focus on writing and developing his own projects, such as the independent drama Only. In 2019, Reynolds was announced as a member of the cast of a Canadian independent film, Red Door and Lemon Tree, and also signed on to co-direct. The film was preparing to begin production in Crete, Greece in 2020, but was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reynolds currently resides in Tamil Nadu, India, where he is writing and pitching feature screenplays aimed at Netflix.

Jaime Murray is evil on TV, but doing good in real life

Jaime Murray joined the recurring cast of Warehouse 13 in the second season in the role of Helena G. Wells. Prior to this, Murray had already made a name for herself on British television on the long-running series Hustle, and then on American cable TV as main antagonist Lila West on the second season of Dexter.


Since Warehouse 13, Murray has continued to work in genre television, first as a regular on the Syfy series Defiance (which overlapped with her role on W13). She seems to have carved out a niche for herself playing wicked or morally questionable immortals, recurring on Once Upon a Time as the Black Fairy, The Originals as the "old-school" vampire Antoinette, and Gotham as Nyssa al Ghul, daughter of the ageless Demon's Head. She is currently a member of the voice cast of the Netflix animated series Castlevania, in which she plays the vampire villainess Carmilla.


Contrary to her onscreen reputation for evil, Murray's real-life Instagram describes her as an "activist & lover of Planet Earth." During the COVID-19 pandemic, Murray has thrown her support behind the Empowerment Collective's COVID-19 Emergency Survival Fund for Nepal, whose goal is to distribute food and face masks to those facing hardship there.

Faran Tehir is still a star, on Earth and in space

Appearing in 11 episodes across three seasons of Warehouse 13, Faran Tehir portrayed Adwin Kosan, head of the Regents, the mysterious governing body that presides over the titular installation. Before first appearing on Warehouse 13 in 2011, Tehir had recently played memorable roles in two smash hit motion pictures, portraying Ten Rings leader Raza in Iron Man and Captain Robou of the doomed USS Kelvin in Star Trek. Tehir has been a consistently working television guest actor both before and since.


Tehir returned to Syfy to portray Mallick on the 2017 season of 12 Monkeys. In 2020, Tehir played the leading role in the independent film I'll Meet You There, and also lent his talents to the kickstarted sci-fi series Space Command, which, impressively, also boasts the talents of Doug Jones (The Shape of Water, Star Trek: Discovery), Bruce Boxleitner (Tron, Babylon 5), and a host of other well-known actors from popular science fiction franchises.
